Today’s the day. Today is the day when the internet might actually implode. Not only has everyone’s favorite internet boyfriend, Benedict Cumberbatch, joined the trend and completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but he did it more than once … and one time, he did it naked.

BBC didn't think Benedict Cumberbatch was sexy enough to play Sherlock Holmes

Cumberbitches, cover your eyes. You won’t like what you’re about to read.

According to Radio Times, Sherlock and Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat revealed at Monday’s Hay Festival that the BBC wasn’t always happy with his casting choices.

Bow down.

The cover of Time‘s annual “100 Most Influential People” issue has been revealed — and its star is none other than Beyoncé.

As is tradition, each Most Influential pick is accompanied by a short explanation written by a famous admirer. In this case, Lean In creator Sheryl Sandberg weighs in on what makes Bey worthy of number one: “Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one,” Sandberg explains. “In the past year, Beyoncé has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother. Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, ‘What would you do if you weren’t afraid?’ appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.’” READ FULL STORY
